Peter Matthiessen
“We have outsmarted ourselves, like greedy monkeys, and now we are full of dread.”
Peter Matthiessen, The Snow Leopard

Peter Matthiessen
“The secret of the mountain is that the mountains simply exist, as I do myself: the mountains exist simply, which I do not. The mountains have no "meaning," they are meaning; the mountains are. The sun is round. I ring with life, and the mountains ring, and when I can hear it, there is a ringing that we share. I understand all this, not in my mind but in my heart, knowing how meaningless it is to try to capture what cannot be expressed, knowing that mere words will remain when I read it all again, another day.”
Peter Matthiessen, The Snow Leopard

Cormac McCarthy
“You give up the world line by line. Stoically. And then one day you realize that your courage is farcical. It doesn't mean anything. You've become an accomplice in your own annihilation and there is nothing you can do about it. Everything you do closes a door somewhere ahead of you. And finally there is only one door left.”
Cormac McCarthy, The Sunset Limited

Lao Tzu
“The hard and mighty lie beneath the ground
While the tender and weak dance on the breeze above.”
Lao Tzu

Raymond Chandler
“Some days I feel like playing it smooth. Some days I feel like playing it like a waffle iron.”
Raymond Chandler, Trouble Is My Business
